Mixed tumor of the skin, more recently called chondroid syringoma, is a rare benign adnexal tumor of the skin that is characterized by a slowly growing intradermal or subcutaneous nodule, which is usually located in the head and neck.

Recurrence after excision is rare and can be attributed to either incomplete removal, which may occur because of the lobulation of the tumor or more rarely due to malignant transformation. Here we are reporting a female patient who presented with a nasal mass that was previously excised twice and our diagnosis was a benign chondroid syringoma.
